2018 is another brilliant wine from Yarra Valley legend Tino Mayer. Allocations are always tight and critic review effusive, so get in quick to avoid disappointment.

This Pinot Noir will also age beautifully in the cellar for those with the patience to wait.

Our notes

The Timo Mayer releases are always highly anticipated at Wine Experience. We tasted all the 2018 vintage wines as a team and were blown away by the quality once again. The three Pinot Noir's Timo producers are some of the best, and best value in the country. Highly recommended.

Cheers Scott

The Wine Front
It’s about 25% whole bunch (one in four barrels is the Dr Mayer 100% whole bunch wine), but that would go up to 50% if it was a hot year, which 2018 wasn’t. This is the ‘Close Planted’ designated wine, of the past. In-your-face perfume of strawberry and raspberry, cherry jam, faint white pepper, almond nutty-savoury. Palate is very fine, ultra fresh, delicate yet bursts forth with all that red berry sweetness but that whips away quickly to almost elemental, pulverised

Producers notes

Timo Mayer is a small producer of hand crafted, single vineyard wines. He believes that wines are made in the vineyard and therefore try to interfere as little as possible.The red wines are unfined and unfiltered to show the true expression of the land. His aim is to make wines with a point of difference. Or in Timo''s words... Bring back the funk!!

Shipping

Delivery is currently free of charge for both straight and mixed cases Australia Wide. (*excludes remote postcodes in WA and NT) (*excludes fundraising orders)

In most instances, a case is 12 bottles, including all mixed cases. Please note that the case quantity can vary between 3-12 bottles, depending on individual wine value and packaging configuration.

The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").

Where all or part of the order is less than a case (as defined in the product pricing options, or 12 bottles if mixed) shipping will be charged as per your postcode at our cost price, this charge amount will be visible before your order confirmation and payment.

For example, a mixed bottle order of 18 bottles will include a freight charge for the second mixed case of only 6 bottles. A mixed 24 bottle order would be totally freight free.

Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes. For estimated delivery times and further information see here. If you have any additional questions, please email us on sales@wineexperience.com.au or call us on 1300 55 44 35
